EU Pig Prices: steady markets and positive futures

This current week of slaughter, the pigs-for-slaughter quotations remain stable and unchanged for the most part.

The Easter festival and the shortened slaughter weeks did not have the usual negative effects this year. The supply of slaughter pigs is small on a cross-border basis, so that price-cutting arguments have no chance. In addition, the development of demand is generally positive, according to the expectations of various market participants in different EU countries.

Unchanged prices were reported in addition to Germany from Spain, the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Austria. The Danish quotation increased by 3 cents corrected, but remains at the bottom in the price structure of the five largest pig-keeping EU member states. In the United Kingdom, the quotation increased by 4 cents corrected.

Trend for the German market

The quantities of pigs for slaughter are quite manageable at the beginning of this week. They are swiftly absorbed by the slaughter companies. As is heard from some marketers, the slaughter companies’ demand can be covered altogether. With another day of slaughter missing on 1 May (public holiday), the prices are expected to go on developing steadily.
